I started this task last night, as I received the 1's, 2's and 5's RSVP's from my step dad.
I cut it all up, and then realized I still needed to put the crystals on the invites, so I shifted gears and started this process.
In the absence of my actual craft tweezers, I grabbed an old pair of my eyebrow ones, because grabbing the gems and dipping them in glue and properly placing with your fingers is IMPOSSIBLE!
- STEP ONE: Squirt some glue, about a dime sized amount onto a scrap piece of paper. It will be easier to apply the glue to the gems this way.
- STEP TWO: Pick up gem with tweezers and dip lightly only the back, in the glue.
- STEP THREE: dab back of glue covered gem on scrap paper to remove excess, a very little amount is needed and you don't want the glue oozing out the sides.
And with Elmer's or the Jule glue I used, you will find that excess will dry clear but it's still better not to have a whole lot because you will still see the clear lump if it's too big.
And then you're all done adding the glitz to your invites!!!
